Less disruptive cuts vs a tax hike and 10 years to figure a way out of cutting...
Which do you think is the most reasonable proposition??
Wabash wrote:How do you know the proposed GOP cuts would be less disruptive?
It didn't fail. It was filibustered by the GOP who won't let it come to a vote. Big difference. The action takes Boehner off the hook since he has passed nothing to address this issue.
Troglodyte wrote:Because apparently the GOP studied the cuts and proposed alternatives. The dems couldn't get passed "raise taxes".
Troglodyte wrote:Kinda hard to claim there wasn't a vote when the next paragraph gives this result.
"Moments later, a Democratic alternative to spread the cuts over a decade and replace half with higher taxes on millionaires and corporations won a bare majority, 51-49, but that was well shy of the 60 needed to advance. Republicans opposed it without exception. "

The world of denial...
